At 25-years old, I realized that a career-first life of making money only to party most of it away on the weekends and save the rest for a “someday” was really only fast-tracking me for an unfulfilling life of mediocrity.
All our lives, we are taught to spend our youth planning for our retirement. One day, literally, I realized just how backward that path truly was and decided to make a different exchange. Swapping a career path for hiking trails, I decided I would rather be rich with experience than money. Knowing less about what I wanted in life and more about what I didn’t, I sold everything I considered luxuries and purchased an old, used station wagon that would become my home for the next 6 months.
That was over 7 years ago, but I prefer to count my time in memories. In my mind, that was 50 states, dozens of countries, and 20+ bucket list knock-offs ago. It was thousands of sleep-deprived journal scrawlings, hundreds of thousands of photos, and perhaps one too many drinks ago. It was at least one lifetime ago.
Though you are seeing some of my photos proudly displayed, I never set out to become a photographer. The thrill of travel is what has driven me all these years, and the need to share these inspiring moments with whoever takes an interest is what sparked the passion for photography that you now see on display. These are the trophies, souvenirs, and mementos of my addiction. My intention was never to make my living selling photos, only to preserve these cherished memories and to share them with the world. With that said, I have learned that there is nothing more gratifying than earning a living from the thing that gives you life.
I want to say a sincere “THANK YOU” to anyone who has taken the time to read this and to peruse my work. Just by doing so, you have become in some way involved in this journey; a journey that would end all too soon without support from friends, family, and strangers alike. I hope you enjoy what you see and welcome conversation from anyone interested in reaching out. Regardless of the topic, I love meeting those of you who have taken an interest in my journey. It is because of you that WE Own the Moment.

RoxyAnn Winery Voted Favorite Vineyard/Winery
Best of Medford 2018. Favorite Vineyard/Winery again! Thank you to all that voted. Congratulations to our co-winner 2-Hawk Winery.
Greetings and Felicitations Roxyites!
Time for another (famed in song and story!) WINEMAKERS CORNER!!
Hopefully, all of you survived the arduous Holiday Season and are doing well. I guess if you didn’t survive you wouldn’t be reading this!
While things are slightly slower (and considerably colder) in the Winery (and Vineyard) things are still moving along. We have finished putting the 2017 vintage wines down into barrels and now we are taking the 2015 individual bottlings of red varietals out and getting them ready for bottling in February. At the same time, we are looking to finish the 2017 Pinot Gris (aka Medford water!), Viognier, and Sauvignon Blanc to bottle as well. Out in the Vineyard the vines are sleeping peacefully waiting for the sun, and warmer temps, to return so they can raise their leaves to the sky and do their ‘Salutations to the Sun’ yet again. Yeah, OK, I wax poetic, but it’s all I’ve got!!
Over at the Tasting Room, we are looking to add a new exterior covering to replace the tents. Do the Happy Dance, Raise the Roof, etc (all the things you hope to NEVER see me do!). This will mean we will not have to put up nor take down the tents EVER AGAIN!!!! YEA!!
So if you see the winemaking staff in the tasting room some afternoon or around the property we “should” all be in good spirits. Until the Bottling truck shows up that is.
So remember RoxyAnn wines are like Doritos…drink all you want and we’ll make more!
From deep in the Winery Bunker,
Your Friendly Local Winemaker Kent Barthman

“This place is a rare find for all the right reasons! Easily one of the coolest Airbnbs that I’ve stayed at. I arrived on a Friday night just in time for the live band and food truck by the tasting room. Barbara provided all the information and made sure everything was taken care of during my short stay. Make sure you get there early to taste some wine (the Malbec was my favorite). The staff are super friendly and the room is filled with witty wine quotes. Will definitely stay here again next time! PS. do NOT leave this place without getting a few bottles of wine =).”
“Terry and Barbara’s cottage was great! We went after harvest and the grounds are still beautiful. The staff in the tasting room was super friendly and even helped explain some of the wines to novice drinkers. We will definitely book this place again for our next journey through the area. Tastefully remodeled and comfortable all around!”
